Some Girls Dance For The Love Of The Thing

Some girls dance
For the love of the thing,
And others For the security that a ring
does bring.
While others, with a fixed smile
Dance in bed
For they have bills to pay
Although it has been said
That some would rather be dead
Than go down that way.
Be that as it may
Will you condemn
Those who with men
Consort for pay
When the wolf
is baying at the door
And call them, “Whore”?
Or will you
Metaphorically flay
The lonely men
Who pay
For company,
And more
With a girl you label “Whore”?
Tell me
Who will you condemn?

    Nobody & everybody wins. Who are we to argue against the oldest employment in the world & the reasons why it should be so? You’ve really captured the sadness & desperation that either party might feel, Kevin. The gritty truth.

      Thank you, Debbie. I agree with you that neither party should be condemned. One should concentrate on those who are forced into prostitution by traffickers, threats of violence etc, and leave those who make a genuine choice to enter the world’s oldest profession alone. Best wishes – Kevin
